Jackson Hole Mountain Resort Opens the New Casper Lift Thursday and More Terrain by Weekend.

(December 4, 2012 - Teton Village, WY) The Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is pleased to announce the new Casper Lift is scheduled to open Thursday this week, followed by the Bridger Gondola, Marmot and Thunder lifts opening on Saturday, December 8th. On Sunday, December 9th the Resort anticipates opening the Aerial Tram for the winter season. Twenty two inches of snow fell last weekend allowing the Resort opening new terrain for skiers and riders this week. With another storm cycle rapidly moving toward the Tetons, the Resort is expecting another significant amount of new snow. Presently snow totals for the year are above normal, with 100 inches season to date in the Tetons, which have received the most snow of any region in the Rockies.


Ranked as the No. 1 Ski Resort by Forbes Magazine and No. 4 by Condé Nast Traveler readers’ poll.

For the second year in a row, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is ranked as the No. 1 Ski Resort by Forbes Magazine in a Dec. 3, 2012, story as well as No. 4 by a 2012 Condé Nast Traveler readers’ poll. As the Forbes story points out, terrain “matters for both beginners and experts.” It is just this that Jackson Hole Mountain Resort prides itself on. As soon as the new Aerial Tram was unveiled in 2008 – the ultimate portal for unbound expert terrain – the Resort dove into a three-year transformation of the Casper intermediate area located mid-mountain by installing a high-speed, 4-passenger chairlift, widening runs and improving the trail network.

The resort’s commitment to all ability levels is as deep as the Tetons’ legendary snowpack. From learning the basics to fine-tuning techniques, and cruising groomers to touring the backcountry, Jackson Hole makes everyone who skis it better, more confident and more capable of exploring. True to its cowboy-meets-cosmopolitan style, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has tamed the wild Tetons into terrain accessible to all. And with three valley hotels ranked in the top 7 by Condé Nast, Jackson Hole is a destination all unto its own.
